Player to watch…

Roberto Firmino: The Brazilian hasn’t been scoring on a regular basis this season, but his form has picked up in recent weeks. The 27-year-old scored a hat-trick against Arsenal and scored the equaliser in vain against Manchester City. He was rested on Monday night, only coming on as a late substitute, so will be fresh for the visit to the Amex – a stadium he scored at twice in last season’s fixture, which the Reds won 5-1.
